Dynasty Dynamics

Top 50 Jumpers

by Ben Carsley and Craig Goldstein


Bret Sayre’s midseason update of his Top 50 Dynasty League Prospects list is already 48 hours old, meaning it’s time to look ahead as to who may make the next rendition of the list.

Craig and I already namedropped a few prospects who we thought should’ve made this iteration of the rankings at the bottom of Bret’s piece, but we wanted to do something different here. Rather than argue for players who should’ve already received such an honor for Mr. Sayre, we want to help dynasty leaguers get ahead of the curve by calling attention to some prospects who could merit top-50 consideration by season's end.

And, since Bret elected to exclude 2014 draftees from his list, we’ll bring you some less obvious players from this June’s draft who could skyrocket up the rankings, too. Never say we don’t care.

2014 Draftees

Ben: Tyler Beede - SP - San Francisco Giants
There are plenty of scenarios in which Beede would not have profiled as a potential top-100 pick in the wake of the draft. But in San Francisco, he landed in one of the best potential spots for his future fantasy value, and I’m excited about what he brings to the table. As we all know, stuff has never been an issue for Beede—it’s been command, consistency, and the willingness/ability to adjust. Thankfully, the Giants are an organization that excels at developing pitching, and if any team can “fix” a unique prospect like Beade, it’s probably them.

Contextual factors come into play here as well, and having Beede call AT&T Park home for half of his games sounds good to me. He’s got the eventual upside of a no. 3 fantasy starter, and if something clicks for him early it would not at all surprise me to see Beede fly through the minors.
